Woodrow Wilson: America’s Worst and First Fascist President

Posted by Tony Listi on May 29, 2008

Thomas Woodrow Wilson, the 28th US president, often makes the top ten in rankings of the best US presidents. In the well-known polls taken by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Sr. in 1948 and 1962, Wilson was ranked #4 behind Lincoln, Washington, and FDR. By the end of this post, I hope you will agree with me that he belongs in the bottom rung and was one of our worst presidents ever, if not THE worst.

Wilson was the first president to criticize the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
Wilson criticized the diffuseness of government power in the US in most famous book Congressional Government. In this work he confessed, “I cannot imagine power as a thing negative and not positive.” His love and worship of power was a prime characteristic of fascism. “If any trait bubbles up in all one reads about Wilson it is this: he loved, craved, and in a sense glorified power,” writes historian Walter McDougall. It should not surprise us that his idols were Abraham Lincoln and Otto von Bismarck.

“No doubt a lot of nonsense has been talked about the inalienable rights of the individual, and a great deal that was mere sentiment and pleasing speculation has been put forward as fundamental principle,” wrote Wilson, attacking the very individual rights that have made America great.

He rejected the principles of “separation of powers” and “checks and balances” that are the foundation of American government: “Government does now whatever experience permits or the times demand….” wrote Wilson in The State.

No fan of democracy or constitutional government, he wrote the following in Constitutional Government in the United States: “The President is at liberty, both in law and conscience, to be as big a man as he can. His capacity will set the limit….” Sounds like a devotee of the imperial presidency.

Indeed, in a disturbing 1890 essay entitled Leaders of Men, Wilson said that a “true leader” uses the masses of people like “tools.” He writes, “The competent leader of men cares little for the internal niceties of other people’s characters: he cares much–everything–for the external uses to which they may be put…. He supplies the power; others supply only the materials upon which that power operates…. It is the power which dictates, dominates; the materials yield. Men are as clay in the hands of the consummate leader.” So much for the dignity of each person!

“Woe be to the man or group of men that seeks to stand in our way,” said Wilson in June 1917 to counter protests to the fascist regime that he created upon entering WW I.

Wilson rejects the Jeffersonian individualism that has defined the Founding and American conservatism: “While we are followers of Jefferson, there is one principle of Jefferson’s which no longer can obtain in the practical politics of America. You know that it was Jefferson who said that the best government is that which does as little governing as possible…. But that time is passed. America is not now and cannot in the future be a place for unrestricted individual enterprise.” Follower of Jefferson? Yeah right!

Wilson sought war with Germany and purposefully drew the US into World War I.
“I am an advocate of peace, but there are some splendid things that come to a nation through the discipline of war,” said Wilson and he would seek after those progressive “splendid things” when the opportunity of WW I arose.

It is an often overlooked fact of WW I that Great Britain’s powerful navy blockaded Germany and in so doing starved the German population. And guess who led the British in this distant blockade (which was against international law at the time)? Our dear beloved Winston Churchill, the First Lord of the Admiralty. This blockade drove the Germans to retaliate with submarine warfare (U-boats), and they warned that “neutral ships will be exposed to danger” and it would be “impossible to avoid attacks being made on neutral ships in mistake for those of the enemy.” This was especially true since British abused the rules of war by decorating their warships with neutral flags to lure German submarines to the surface and destroy them.

Wilson all the while claimed neutrality but was actually very pro-British. The British blockade and the German unrestricted submarine warfare both violated the rights of neutral nations under international law. But he refused to acknowledge that the former had led to the latter. German misdeeds against vessels carrying Americans received swift denunciation from Wilson, but the terrible British blockade that starved hundreds of thousands of Germans to death got a slap on the wrist. The Germans even proposed to end their unrestricted sub warfare if the British would end the blockade; the British refused. It was this double standard that would drive Wilson to bring the US into the war.

The cunning Churchill knew of Wilson’s irrational disposition and used it to his advantage: “It is most important to attract neutral shipping to our shores in the hope especially of embroiling the United States with Germany….” Britain aimed to lure America into the war. Indeed, by making it dangerous for the German submarines to surface, Churchill would increase his chances of success: “The submerged U-boat had to rely increasingly on underwater attack and thus ran the greater risk of mistaking neutral for British ships and of drowning neutral crews and thus embroiling Germany with other Great Powers.” By that time, the US was the only great power left that had remained neutral.

The most famous incident was the sinking of the Lusitania. But you will seldom read in school textbooks that the German government actually published warnings in major newspapers not to book passage on the great vessel. But most passengers ignored the warning. The German U-boat only fired one torpedo at the Lusitania and, to the surprise of the German captain Walter Schwieger, that was all it took. The liner went down so quickly that Swieger noted, “I could not have fired a second torpedo into this thing of humanity attempting to save themselves.” A total of 124 Americans died.

What was the American reaction to this tragedy? Hardly any of the newspapers advocated that declaring war was the proper response. Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan certainly had no desire to go to war over it and challenged Wilson’s double standard head on: “Why be shocked by the drowning of a few people, if there is no objection to a starving nation?” It was of no use and Bryan resigned in protest. Senators Wesley Jones of Washington and Robert Follette of Wisconsin urged the President to exercise restraint.

Bryan’s replacement, Robert Lansing, reveals that the Wilson administration was determined to go to war: “In dealing with the British government, there was always in my mind the conviction that we would ultimately become an ally of Great Britain and that it would not do, therefore, to let our controversies reach a point where diplomatic correspondence gave place to action.” American protests against Britain were carefully “submerged in verbiage. It was done with deliberate purpose. It insured the continuance of the controversies and left the questions unsettled, which was necessary in order to leave this country free to act and even act illegally when it entered the war.”

Germany then agreed to call off the sub warfare if Wilson would pressure Britain to stop the hunger blockade (Sussex Pledge). Wilson refused.

Then Wilson did the most irresponsible act that brought us into war: he ordered that merchant ships be armed with US Navy guns and staffed with US Navy crews and that they fire on any surfacing submarines they encountered. Under such circumstances, the ships sailed into the war zone. Wilson sent out ships with the purpose of sacrificing them in order to push America into war! Four of them had been sunk by the time Wilson requested a declaration of war from Congress. It was only after the war that Congress would realize what a dangerous fanatic Wilson was and actually stood up to him be rejecting the Treaty of Versailles, especially Article 10 the League of Nations. This article obligated each League member to preserve the territorial integrity of the other member states. Why should the US sacrifice blood and treasure for obscure border disputes in Europe? Congress was not advocating isolationism as many have asserted but rather defending its own constitutional authority to decide when America goes to war.

John Bassett Moore, a distinguished professor of international law at Columbia University who would serve on the International Court of Justice after the war, argued that “what most decisively contributed to the involvement of the United States in the war was the assertion of a right to protect belligerent ships on which Americans saw fit to travel and the treatment of armed belligerent merchantmen as peaceful vessels. Both assumptions were contrary to reason, and no other neutral advanced them.” Wilson apparently believed that every American, in time of war, had the right to travel aboard armed, belligerent merchant ships carrying munitions of war through a declared submarine zone. No other neutral power had ever proclaimed such a doctrine, let alone gone to war over it!

No American interest was at stake in WW I, and yet a total of 116,516 men died and 204,002 were wounded. In fact, Wilson bragged about fighting a war with no national interests at stake! “There is not a single selfish element, so far as I can see, in the cause we are fighting for,” he declared. It was a war to satisfy his own naive idealism that he could remake the world in his “progressive” ideology. War was an instrument for perverse social engineering that would remake the world: “[A]s head of a nation participating in the war, the president of the United States would have a seat at the peace table, but…if he remained the representative of a neutral country, he could at best only ‘call through a crack in the door.'” The whole war was so that HE could have a seat at a table?! The guy was insane, sick (even Freud, who wrote a whole book on Wilson, thought so).Movie Poster

Wilson created the first official propaganda department in the US.
A week after Congress declared war on Germany, Wilson created a government apparatus whose sole purpose was to lie to the American people, the first modern ministry for propaganda in the West. It was called the Committee on Public Information and was led by journalist George Creel.

Edward Bernays, an adviser to Wilson and participant in CPI operations, characterized the mission of CPI as the “engineering of consent” and “the conscious manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses.”

A typical poster for Liberty Bonds read: “I am Public Opinion. All men fear me!…[I]f you have money to buy and do not buy, I will make this No Man’s Land for you!” Other posters were created to mobilize the public and silence dissent.

A trained group of nearly a hundred thousand men gave four minute speeches to any audience that would listen. They portrayed Wilson as a larger-than-life leader and the Germans as less-than-human Huns, emphasizing fabricated German war crimes and horrors.

CPI released propaganda films entitled The Claws of the Hun, The Prussian Cur, To Hell With The Kaiser, and The Kaiser, the Beast of Berlin.

Wilson harshly suppressed dissent and resistance among citizens and the press.
At Wilson’s urging, a Sedition Act (not unlike the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 ) forbade Americans from criticizing their own government in a time of war. Citizens could not “utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language” about the government or the military. The Postmaster General was given the authority to revoke the mailing privileges of those who disobeyed. About 75 periodicals were were shut down by the government in this way and many others were given warnings.

In the fashion of a police state, the Department of Justice arrested tens of thousands of individuals without just cause. One was not safe even within the walls of one’s own home to criticize the Wilson administration. A letter to federal attorneys and marshals said that citizens had nothing to fear as long as they “Obey the law; keep your mouth shut.” In fact, the Justice Department created the precursor to the Gestapo called the American Protective League. Its job was to spy on fellow citizens and turn in “seditious” persons or draft dodgers. In September of 1918 in NYC, the APL rounded up about 50,000 people. This doesn’t even include the infamous Palmer Raids (named after Wilson’s attorney general) that occurred after the war.

In 1915, in his address to Congress, Wilson declared, “The gravest threats against our national peace and safety have been uttered within our own borders. There are citizens of the United States, I blush to admit, born under other flags…who have poured the poison of disloyalty into the very arteries of our national life; who have sought to bring the authority and good name of our Government into contempt, to destroy our industries wherever they thought it effective for their vindictive purposes….”

All in all it is estimated that about 175,000 Americans were arrested for failing to demonstrate their patriotism in one way or another.

Wilson took over the US economy completely.
He charged Bernard Baruch with running the War Industries Board, which would endeavor to control all industry in service to the state. It would serve as a precursor to the corporatist policies Mussolini and Hitler.

Grosvenor Clarkson, a member and later historian of the WIB, would characterize the WIB as follows: “It was an industrial dictatorship without parallel–a dictatorship by force of necessity and common consent which step by step at least encompassed the Nation and united it into a coordinated and mobile whole.” He would also later say that the war was “a story of the conversion of a hundred million combatively individualistic people into a vast cooperative effort in which the good of the unit was sacrificed to the good of the whole.” The government weakened the spirit of the people to resist government tyranny.

Rationing and price-fixing characterized the wartime command economy. (hmmm, sounds like communism and the Carter administration)

Wilson himself was a major cause of the outbreak of World War II.
It is a well-accepted fact that the extremely harsh and unfair terms of the Treaty of Versailles were the incipient cause of WW II. Wilson’s Fourteen Points were fair and persuaded the Germans to surrender before the allies devastated Germany. He had the opportunity to make sure Europe did not take revenge on Germany, but he let is slip away. He threw Germany to the dogs so he could have his worthless, utopian League of Nations. He deluded himself into thinking the League could make up for the other thirteen points. This stab in the back of Germany would give rise to Hitler and allow him to rouse the German people to war a mere two decades or so later. Therefore, in a very real sense, Wilson is responsible for all the horrors of WW II.

In sum, Wilson was the first fascist president of the US and first major fascist dictator of the 20th c.
Wilson took over the US economy, infringed on American civil liberties especially by suppressing dissent, oppressed the “unpatriotic,” and purposefully sought to drag the US into war. This Marxist, totalitarian, jingoistic, and militaristic Democrat president was a fascist. He worshiped the power of the state, and such statolatry is exactly what fascism is.

I don’t think President George W. Bush is a fascist, but his Wilsonian idealism for spreading democracy should disturb any conservative. America was attacked on 9/11; no such thing happened during Wilson’s presidency. The Patriot Act is no where near as harmful to civil liberties as Wilson’s Sedition Act was, if harmful at all.

Though the Democratic Party is largely dominated by anti-war people now (even though Soviet communism and radical Islam have been actual threats to national security unlike the Kaiser’s Germany), Wilson’s fascism still remains with the party, especially with regard to economics and expanding the power of the federal government in general whenever possible. This should not be surprising since fascism is a product of the Left, not the Right, side of the political spectrum.

      Fascism is considered a right wing philosophy on the left-right political spectrum.

        Wrongly considered a right-wing philosophy.

      • BlackBeaver said

        Remember, the distinction of “Left” and “Right” in the context of politics was started by the Communist Party to differentiate itself from other Socialist organizations. Thus the Communists portrayed themselves- the true Socialists- as on the Left; the Nazis (National Socialist German Workers Party), along with other a Fascist organizations, on the Right.

        So, yes, Fascism is “a right wing philosophy” among Socialists- one might say ‘the right side of the left’!

      • Jonah Goldberg wrote a seminal book called, “Liberal Fascism” that provides specific, detailed analysis of Fascism as a leftist political movement. It clearly contradicts the prevailing orthodoxy first articulated by the Communists (and then promoted by their proxies in the MSM and American academia) that Fascism is somehow a “right wing” political movement. “Liberal Fascism” is a fascinating, insightful book. I highly recommend it.

    • Mark Mahlum said

      Well put BlackBeaver.

      Ours is a fascism first, socialist second and capitalist a distant third economy, by definition. The private sector is heavily controlled, though not owned by the state. Government (at all levels) consume some 40%+ of everything and own infrastructure , defense, land resources, etc. That’s socialism. Come to think of it, there is no free market capitalism in the U.S. anymore. And fascism is a left wing ideology because it is collectivist, not individualist. Everything in fascism, like communism and socialism is for the good of the whole at the expense of the individual. Thus, the Democrat party is split between socialism and fascism. Republicans are a little bit socialist, somewhat fascist and most of all capitalist. I’m speaking about economic philosophies, of course.

  5. adude said

    I think you have borrowed a lot of material from a book called liberal fascism but might have missed the point he was trying to make in the book. Fascism wasn’t a single idea but a wave of ideas that centered around the notion that governments, the state, and the citizens were a part of one body and the body had a right to purge anything it wanted for whatever reason for the health of that body which is the state. I am reading it to and it seemed like he and others believed that “purging” was needed in order to establish some greater social order. This allowed him to do all the stuff that he did do during his presidency which is different from what Bush did after 911. He did it for national security while Wilson did it to promote his “progressive” idealogy. Now you tell me what is more fascist of the two.

    • Mike Abbott said

      I dont buy Bush doing it for “national security”..there is always some pretext for travesties such as the “patriot act” and the antics of Wilson. Hitler also professed to act in the intrests of “national security.” I think the bottom line is we confuse facism with a political party or fundamental form of government when in reality it is a single tennent of a political philosophy. Facist can indeed come from the left or right… Infact it is derived from ideoogies of both spectrums. In short the term can accurately be used to describe a entity of either end of the spectrum who is not a political pureist which are infact rare.

      • Tony Listi said

        Fascism is nothing more than national socialism rather than international socialism. And socialism is of the political left. So fascism is originally and inherently of leftist origin and orientation. Conservative patriotism is not equivalent to nationalism or imperialism. The true conservative has no desire to socially engineer other countries (i.e. spread democracy around the world by military force). Bush is and was a neocon.

    • DELUSIONAL! George W. Bush, a Neocon puppet to the master string pullers such as Wolfowitz, Kristol, and many other PNAC types., did NOT engage Iraq and Afghanistan for national security reasons. The CAUSED 911 in the first place. To wit: there never was any commercial Boeing 757 recovered from Shanksville, PA., nor was there any Boeing 757 recovered from the Pentagon. Furthermore, you cannot get alleged aircraft debris sailing through the air and landing EIGHT miles away in New Baltimore, from an aircraft alleged to have impacted in Shanksville, with a negative angle of attack according to its NTSB vouched for Flight Data Recorder. That’s simply impossible.

      All this talk about fascism, communism, socialism and capitalism, clearly misses the point. The real word people need to be studying is Neo-Imperialism. Or, put another way, The New World Order – something that the vast majority of people don’t understand. It is completely predicated on Spiritual Wickedness in High Places. The calling card of Neo-Imperialism is to turn the masses into Economic Slaves who are completely blind to the underlying Cause & Effect that drives their lifestyle and life choices.

      I realize this thread was about Wilson. I realize that it was posted by someone who is blinded by politics and politicking, in an attempt to make one side of the mainstream U.S. political spectrum look worse than the other. But, the truth of the matter is that Party Politics is a Blindfold being propped-up by Neo-Imperialists over the eyes of the masses to keep them in the dark about a Global System of Spiritual Wickedness and Massive Corruption at all levels and its attempt (successful, I might add) to keep you and your generations, Economic Slaves, expressly for their benefit.

      Wilson’s illegal entry into WWI was part of that plan. Bush 43’s illegal entry into Afghanistan and Iraq, was part of that plan. And, the pending illegal entry into Iran, will also be part of that plan – regardless of which “party” sits in the White House.

  6. foospro86 said

    Depends what you mean by “purging.” In some nations, liberal fascists have been content to take over the educational system, media, and arts & entertainment industry. In others, purging meant genocide.

    True enough, 9/11 exposed a real security threat, unlike what happened in the lead up to WWI. There are definitely differences between Wilson and Bush. But at the same time, regardless of the impetus, they both seem to have had the same questionable goal: “making the world safe for democracy,” which basically means reshaping the world in America’s image. This is not a conservative idea at the root; it does not contain the humility that comes from a recognition of the power of culture, tradition, and history in all human societies. Western culture may be quite superior to others, but that doesn’t mean something good can come of trying to impose Western institutions on peoples with a non-Western culture. It has to be an absolute last resort and done prudently, if even then.

    I do not mean to impugn or minimize the suffering and bravery of the American troops who fought in WWI, but the entry by the US into the war was the seminal tragedy of the 20th Century, an act that was the beginning the death and destruction that cascade down through decades and has still not ended.

  10. patriot said

    You should add the fact that woodrow wilson was the president that gave us the Federal Reserve
    and the IRS two planks of the communist manifesto, and of course all us patriots know we are still under this communist maggot economic system that is the cause of all of america’s problems
    since 1913. Ron Paul is the man to rip this whole demoncrap communist economic system out by the roots and throw it in the middle of the road for us to all run over it. If I could ever
    get into the White House Constitutional Money would be my first Executive Order. Republicans must stop going along with this global marxist economic crap and invoke common sense and flat out physically enforce our sovereignty by arresting and charging the whole democrat party with
    treason. We are sovereign the government is not, and it’s only authority came from us sovereign
    people. we hold ultimate police authority to enforce the common law, magna charta, constitution and use the assise courts to try and convict the democraps for treason. Even Ken Starr made a statement about the sovereignty of the people to the Whittier Daily News a few days ago as it pertains to the voters right to amend the California Constitution with proposition 8 forever banning gay marriage. Look, Thomas Paine wrote “Common Sense” to overthrow red coats and the british tyranny, and that book is just as viable to overthrow the demoncrap maggots today as back in 1775. After all todays democrat party is far more vile than the red coats ever were. The
    Founding Fathers had it right and Republicans must thump the shit out of the demoncrap maggots, throw out their communist maggot economic, and political system and go back strictly to the U.S.A. Constitution free market capitalist republic and pass laws to forever criminalize anyone
    who suggests any totalitarian legislation like marxism or keneysian economics ever be part of our republic again. And the Free Enterprise Society did prove that only 3 states ever ratified the 16th amendment, but Woodrow Wilson rubber stamped it along with the Federal Reserve Act both in 1913 the corporate defacto incorporation of every geographic subdivision of the U.S. has followed making sovereign citizens federal tax slave subjects by adhesion contracts, and volumes of unconstitutional revenue and law enforcement codes to steal wealth form the sovereign people of U.S.A. channeling it into marxist corporate de facto democrat coffers.

      This is exactly how Hitler attacked the left, with the same words “communist maggots,: etc. Fascism lives by attacking the left. The first people Hitler sent to the concentrations camps were lefties, liberals, socialists, anarchists, and communists.

      Jonah Goldberg says in an interview in the California Literary Review (2008):

      “Democracy and liberalism are not fascistic.” A strange comment for the autor of Liberal Fascism.

      Fascists always rise to power by denouncing liberals and leftists. The face of American fascism today is the conservative preaching that liberalism itself is fascistic, just as the face of modern racism is the racist arguing that blacks are the real racists.

    Could Obama Be America’s First Defacto President?

    Innocent Americans increasingly are sent to prison based on false evidence manufactured by police forensic crime labs. Now President Obama wants the power to incarcerate U.S. Citizens not on evidence, but for what they might do.

    Compare: Two days after the 1933 burning of Germany’s Parliament Building, blamed on communists, Hitler responded with a powerful speech before Parliament. Hitler asked Parliament to suspend sections of the Reich Constitution that protected Citizens’ Rights and Civil Liberties. Hitler said the suspension was necessary so government could protect the homeland from being destroyed by communists. Hitler promised Parliament the Constitution would later be restored. After Parliament passed Hitler’s Discriminatory Decrees and Hitler signed it February 28, 1933, Hitler immediately used the news laws to abolished Parliament. See Hitler’s 1933 Discriminatory Laws below:

    Obama gave a speech in May 2010, that proposed incarcerating in indefinite prolonged detention without evidence, any person government deemed a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future; that would include U.S. Citizens “without evidence of wrongdoing.” With that amount power Obama like Hitler could arrest members of Congress, drag U.S. Citizens off the street and from their homes to be imprisoned indefinitely based only on Government’s claim they are a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future.

    If Congress approves Obama’s categories of people likely to engage in violent acts, overnight millions of lawful U.S. activists could be subject to arrest, Indefinite Prolonged Detention. When you examine Obama’s speech, it appears Obama wants retroactive power to incarcerate anyone government claims (prior) supported violent acts on the premise that person is likely to support violent acts in the future: U.S. activists would be extremely vulnerable because no activist can control what another activist or group might do illegally they network with domestically or overseas. Government would only have to allege a person; group or organization might commit a violent act in the future to order Preventative Detention of lawful participants with no evidence whatsoever. Americans would be afraid to speak out.

    It is foreseeable any “individual” who writes on the Internet or verbally express an opinion against or entity of U.S. Government or its coalition partners could be deemed by authorities a “Combatant” or likely to engage in or cause violent acts: government too easily could claim an author’s writings inspired people in the past and will in the future to commit or support violent acts. It is problematic that indefinitely detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile activities, not given Miranda Warnings or allowed legal counsel; interrogated, will be prosecuted for ordinary crimes because of their alleged admissions while held in indefinite “Prolonged Detention. Obama wants the power to override the U.S. Constitution. Obama wants the power to detain indefinitely any American without probable cause or evidence, based on conjecture someone might do something violent in the future.

    Obama similar to Hitler is centralizing power in the federal Government by getting passed legislation the U.S. government could potentially use to intimidate and threaten corporations among others. Hitler got passed similar laws shortly before the burning of the German Parliament building blamed on the communists. Immediately after the fire, Hitler used his new laws to coerce corporations and influential Citizens to support passage of fascist legislation that suspended provisions of the German Constitution that protected Citizens’ freedoms and civil liberties. Obama is now approaching a position where he can use similar new laws, including the Patriot Act and 200 asset forfeiture laws to seize any corporation or individual’s assets; and force U.S. corporations and other institutions like Hitler did to support legislation that threatens or curtails rights of Americans.

    More recently Obama has moved forward to crush Free Speech, silence his critics by pushing passage of HR 5175: this abomination will choke the 1st Amendment, denying the right of free speech to ordinary Americans. Under Title II: groups like Gun Owners of America and other groups including bloggers that only mention “public officials” within 60 days of an election, could be required to file onerous disclosures–and potentially have to disclose their membership lists—despite the Supreme Court ruling in NAACP v. Alabama that held membership lists like those of GOA’s) are off limits to government control. Is Obama’s support of HR 5175 similar to what Hitler did to shut up his critics? In the run up to Parliament passing his police state laws including the 1933 Discriminatory Decrees that abolished Citizen’s Free Speech, Hitler employed thugs to beat up reporters, arrest anyone who had courage to criticize the Fuhrer or his Nazi government or expose introduced legislation. Is Obama by supporting HR 5175 to shut up his critics, trying to American to the same place?

    Alarmingly the Obama Government recently employed a vendor to search Internet social networking sites to collect about information about Americans that could potentially be used by this government to injure Americans, for example, if you apply for a federal job, your name might be crossed referenced by the Obama Government with comments you made at Websites against Obama; or if you make application at a bank for a loan the Government has control since the financial crisis, could your Internet comment(s) prevent you getting that loan? Obama’s monitoring of the Internet sites can too easily be used by Government to intimidate Citizens from speaking out. Obama Top CZAR Cass Sunstein prepared a 2008 paper that proposed spying on Americans, infiltrating groups and organizations to obstruct Free Speech, disrupt the exchange of ideas and disseminate false information to neutralize Americans that might question government.

    DECREE OF THE REICH PRESIDENT FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE PEOPLE AND STATE

    Note: Based on translations by State Department, National Socialism, 1942 PP. 215-17, and Pollak, J.K., and Heneman, H.J., The Hitler Decrees, (1934), pp. 10-11.7

    In virtue of Section 48 (2) of the German Constitution, the following is decreed as a defensive measure against Communist acts of Violence, endangering the state:

    Section 1
    Sections 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124, and 153 of the Constitution of the German Reich are suspended until further notice. Thus, restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press, on the right of assembly and the right of association, and violations of the privacy of postal, telegraphic, and telephonic communications, and warrants for house-searches, orders for confiscations as well as restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed.

    Section 2
    If in a state the measures necessary for the restoration of public security and order are not taken, the Reich Government may temporarily take over the powers of the highest state authority.

    Section 4
    Whoever provokes, or appeals for or incites to the disobedience of the orders given out by the supreme state authorities or the authorities subject to then for the execution of this decree, or the orders given by the Reich Government according to Section 2, is punishable—insofar as the deed, is not covered by the decree with more severe punishment and with imprisonment of not less that one month, or with a fine from 150 up to 15,000 Reichsmarks.

    Whoever endangers human life by violating Section 1, is to be punished by sentence to a penitentiary, under mitigating circumstances with imprisonment of not less than six months and, when violation causes the death of a person, with death, under mitigating circumstances with a penitentiary sentence of not less that two years. In addition the sentence my include confiscation of property.

    Whoever provokes an inciter to or act contrary to public welfare is to be punished with a penitentiary sentence, under mitigating circumstances, with imprisonment of not less than three months.

    Section 5
    The crimes which under the Criminal Code are punishable with penitentiary for life are to be punished with death: i.e., in Sections 81 (high treason), 229 (poisoning), 306 (arson), 311 (explosion), 312 (floods), 315, paragraph 2 (damage to railroad properties, 324 (general poisoning).

    Insofar as a more severe punishment has not been previously provided for, the following are punishable with death or with life imprisonment or with imprisonment not to exceed 15 years:

    1. Anyone who undertakes to kill the Reich President or a member or a commissioner of the Reich Government or of a state government, or provokes to such a killing, or agrees to commit it, or accepts such an offer, or conspires with another for such a murder;

    2. Anyone who under Section 115 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious rioting) or of Section 125 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious disturbance of the peace) commits the act with arms or cooperates consciously and intentionally with an armed person;

    3. Anyone who commits a kidnapping under Section 239 of the Criminal with the intention of making use of the kidnapped person as a hostage in the political struggle.

    Section 6
    This decree enters in force on the day of its promulgation.

    Reich President
    Reich Chancellor
    Reich Minister of the Interior
    Reich Minister of Justice

    I haven’t seen where anyone said anything about the Federal reserve Act that he signed. It was the worst bill ever signed into law. Below is a quote from him about exactly what it did and is still doing to every person in the country. And have you ever heard a government representative say anything about this except Rep Ron Paul? And to further make this point in a speech gien by Senator LaFollette and Congressman Lindbergh and a quote by George F. Baker., partner of J.P. Morgan.
    President Wilson later came to regret signing the bill: “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

    The speeches of Senator LaFollette and Congressman Lindbergh became rallying points of opposition to the Aldrich Plan in 1912. They also aroused popular feeling against the Money Trust. Congressman Lindbergh said, on December 15, 1911,
    “The government prosecutes other trusts, but supports the money trust. I have been waiting patiently for several years for an opportunity to expose the false money standard, and to show that the greatest of all favoritism is that extended by the government to the money trust.”
    Senator LaFollette publicly charged that a money trust of fifty men controlled the United States. George F. Baker., partner of J.P. Morgan, on being queried by reporters as to the truth of the charge, replied that it was absolutely in error. He said that he knew from personal knowledge that not more than eight men ran this country.

      A common thread of progressive issues is the distrust of the banking elites.
      On this issue, conservatives and progressives can unite, as they did in the era when the original Progressive movement arose out of the Republic Party.

      And we can all unite on ending the wars, bringing the troops home, ending american imperialism, and drastically cutting the 1.4 trillion defense budget.

      Break up and control the banks; end American military aggression and reduce the size of defense: Ron Paul conservatives and progressives can unite on these critical issues.

      The Elites practice divide and conquer, as their natural constituency is very small. Wedge issues like guns, gays, and God separate natural allies.

      We all suffer from elite rule, banks and corporations which corrupt government with their wealth and power, and we all suffer from a defense budget 25 larger than Russia’s, 15 times larger than China: a form of permanant war to create a war economy for the socialism for the weapons makers.

      Why can’t we unite on these issues? As long as conservatives consider their first job as attacking liberals (as in liberals are fascists), they will be unable to make common cause with their natural allies, the progressives who reject the corporatocracy, the war economy, and the suppression of civil rights.

      • As opposed to liberals attacking conservatives?

        You do make some good points on this post, but I can see by your your prior posts that you are unwilling to even consider Wilson being a tyrant. So, how will it be possible to even meet in the middle, if you refuse to concede that Wilson was a son of a bitch as Bush is ?

  28. Dear Forum
    I does not surprise me that progressives have sterilized school books, and curriculum’s, of the truth behind Wilson’s and FDR’s attempts to rule the country under the guise of benevolence and caring for the people of America. Once they had acquired enough power and control over our laws and courts they would have shown their true colors. FDR tried to subvert the law and make it a 15 member supreme court. He wanted to appoint 6 more judges to pack the court with people of his own choosing and ideology. He wanted government control of businesses and industries. Just like governmental socialism. By the time Wilson and FDR died the American people had had enough of each one and in FDR’s case passed a Constitutional amendment to limit terms to 2 for President’s. For the most part Wilson’s ideas were known by the people and by the time he died people were almost in revolt and fed up with him. His wife kept things going for a while but they could not keep up with events. As far as I know, he was the absolute worst President we have ever elected to the office. He was such a bigot and racist they could not keep people from knowing about it. FDR’s policies kept the crash going for a lot longer time period than if he had let everything fail and just start over. It was his efforts to keep every company going and create new government agencies to put people to work and by doing so, prolonged the depression and made it deeper. When FDR died, socialism was dead and Truman went on with the good principals of capitalism. Nothing is perfect and no one always does it right. We learn by fault and trying harder. What we need more than anything else is new people with new ideas. They go to Washington with goals in mind, and when they accomplish them, go home and become good citizens. NO MORE CAREER POLITICIANS who never leave Washington. People that have never held a job or worked for a living, never built any kind of business or been involved in starting one. No more families of politicians handing office down to their children or relatives. No more Kennedy clans with built up fantasies about family history. If you want a real shock that will curl your hair. Read about the TRUE history of the democratic party. The true history of the republican party with civil rights proves that whey were the ones who pushed every civil rights bill and it was the democrats that blocked them in every instance. Please don’t believe me. Just look it up yourselves. Go to Google and print out ( The true history of the democratic party.) Then look up ( The true history of Civil rights with the Republican party. ) Read it and then tell me I am wrong. God Bless America.

    Hello! Excellent article on Pres. Wilson. He was a fraud bigtime and it is a shame that the american history books, for the most part, give him a free pass and put him on a pedistal. Same with Pres. Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt. Our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves right now, hoping and praying that people like Rep. Ron Paul come to office/educate the American people. I have a big interest in military history but I also know that world events are manipulated by hidden forces and wars are for profit. Our armed forces are always blamed for fighting in wars not needed. Our fighting men and women should all read ” War is a Racket ” by Gen S. Butler, USMC. { I believe I have his name correct ] Our armed forces should be strong and ready to defend this country but at the same time be aware of the worlds manipulaters and the Military Industrial complex. You are truly a patriot and a follower of the Founding Fathers, good for you for your web site. Hope all is well with you and yours! Tom Jantz in Mich.

  53. dale said

    The Progressive era was a mix of Republican and Democratic ideas, with both business and labor support. Liberal fascism is a contradiction in terms. Progressivism contains a consistent populist desire to break up monopolies and create competitive free markets; fascism is “the merging of the interests of the state and the corporations.” (Mussolini). Break up monopolies and regulating business to prevent unfair practices is the opposite of merging of State and corporations. For a real merge, look at the Bush regime: Bush of Big Oil, Cheney of Big Oil and Military/Industrial Complex, Condi Rice of Big Oil, Paulson of Big Banks. This was total fascism, as not only the interests but the actual elites of the corporations became the leaders of the state. And look at the result: 9/11 allowed to happen, two senseless costly wars, nearly doubling the national debt, and the economic collapse of 2008, of which Bush said “We have abandoned the principles of the free market in order to save the free market.” Exactly.

    Fascism, historically, whether of Hitler, Mussolini, Pinochet or McCarthy, rises to power by denouncing liberals. To then call liberalism fascist seems to be a total absurdity.
    Hitler hated, fired, imprisoned, and killed lefties. Tell the dead German liberals that they are not the victims of fascism but the cause of it!

    Fascism also always accepts a class society with inequality accepted. Progressives always fight to end class society and increase inequality. Progressives, Wilson notwithstanding, have a long history of being anti-war, from Vietnam to Iraq.

    There is no liberal fascism, but there is American fascism, which the progressives of today are criticizing in their journals and opposing with deep commitment. Remember that when whether govt controls corporations or corporations control govt, or just when the interests and roles of the state and corporations “merge,” we have fascism, filled out by racism (anti-immigrant; anti-Muslim, anti-black), preemptive wars, and suppressing human rights.

    Fascism arose of German and Italian rightwing politics and campaigned against the liberals of the Weimar Republic and Italy. Liberals, because they opposed fascism, were the first victims. This fact alone proves how foolish and “fascistic (ie attacking liberals) the liberalism is fascism thesis is.

    JOnah Goldberg refutes his own thesis when he says, in an interview (CAlifornia Literary Review, 2008): ” Democracy and liberalism are not fascistic.” He says this in defending our fascistic invasion of Iraq, as we seek to force on them liberal democracy.

    But the ill-informed will not be deterred in using this concept to attack liberals. It’s all they have, and they are brainwashed to support policies which hurt their own best interests. Liberals should be criticized, but to claim that liberalism is fascism is a revision of history which dishonors all those liberals who have died, and continue to die, at the hands of fascist leaders throughout the world.

    Actually, the Republicans were shoved out of the American political process from about 1907 until 1921. TR unconsciously began the Progressive movement and Wilson exploited all of the things that Democrats, Progressives and Populists wanted in an ideological world. Republicans, like today, were busy working and trying to keep their businesses together than getting involved in the World Political Theater.

    Hitler, like Pol Pot, Peron and assorted other dictators, targeted intellectuals who espoused freedom of speech and free will–not “liberals” per se.

    If you ask me, I’d say you’re a little imbalanced, there, Fella. You say we can all agree on something, yet you present a whole laundry list of ideas you expect us to agree on. Seems kinda Fascistic to me.

    I whole-heartedly disagree with your “break up and control the banks” dictum. Stay the heck away from my bank and my money. You devalue my labor it by taking the juvenile notion of creating more cash, and then sending it out into the ether or to entities that offer no service or value.

  57. I was also told that Woodrow Wilson was a Silver-Tongued Devil Talker.
    That means anytime he gave a speech he said great things but they mean something really bad.
    He desegregated the U.S. Army seperating the black and white soldiers.
    During World War I the black solders were authorized to sheild the white soldiers.
    Very few black soldiers ever returned to the U.S. after the war was fought.
    The movie that inspired him was “The Birth of a Nation.” This movie glorified the actions
    of the Ku Klux Klan.
    My question is how could ppl tell if Wilson was lying? Back when he was president

    He is the most overrated President in our history. As many have pointed out Wilson’s foreign policies resulted in Hitler. That’s what happens when you elect the son of ministers. He was pious and this was one of his better points. Fortunately he was the last openly racist President. His campaign for his “League of Nations”
    shows his inability to deal with opposing points of view. He also in my opinion was responsible for Warren Harding (our worst President to be elected). Charles Evans Hughes would have been a great president (lost in 1916 thanks to the impeding US involvement in WW1). I believe Wilson always planned for the US to be involved in the needless WW1 but waited until he was reelected to do so
